Salary arrears: "Fayemi should help me pay the money", says Fayose


Salary arrears: "Fayemi should help me pay the money", says Fayose
The outgoing Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, has asked workers in the southwest state to hold the incoming governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi responsible for their outstanding four months salary arrears.

Governor Fayose said the monies he could have used to pay them as expected had been withheld by the Federal Government for Fayemi’s resumption.

His words: “They paid other states Paris Refund, they didn’t pay Ekiti; Fayemi should help me pay the money.

“They didn’t pay N2.2bn Budget Support Fund; my promise is fulfilled but the money is in the hands of government, they should help me to pay.”

The governor, who on Wednesday during the inauguration of a new school he built in his Afao-Ekiti home country as part of his legacies projects, told the gathering that he did not borrow money from anywhere to fund any of the projects.

Fayose noted that “With all these legacies projects, I didn’t borrow any dime. I do not owe any debt if they say I’m owing; they should show evidence of transaction.

“Besides, no governor can borrow without the knowledge of the Ministry of Finance and the Debt Management Office.”

Governor Fayose urged the incoming administration not to neglect the school or abandon any legacy project.

The governor said the school named Gifted Academy International would receive students from Ekiti and outside on 50:50 ratio.

“The school is equipped with modern equipment, laboratories, furniture and Closed-Circuit Television for surveillance,” he said.

Fayose urged the people of the town to preserve the heritage and support government in sustaining it.
